      Thank you for your inquiry! We have sent information out to those interested in attending the Oxford Theology Summer School in 2014. You are also encouraged to attend the week preceding the summer school which will be the first ever GTF Institute at Oxford.

  • I spent two wonderful, exciting and spirit filled sessions at Christ Church (1996 and 1997). I would recommend the experience to anyone seeking some time away in an OLD WORLD atmosphere, and those who have a love of learning.
    Ps. I looked at the series HARRY POTTER and I think he sat in my old seat in the Refectory LOL.

      We are always pleased to hear that students enjoyed their experience at Oxford! Christ Church is known to be one of the most beautiful of all of the 37 colleges that make up the University of Oxford. We’re happy to know you have very fond memories of spending time there, especially in the Hogwarts dining room! Thank you for sharing this comment.
